Impact Youth Ministry

Impact Youth Ministry is designed to help youth in grades 6-12 develop a life-impacting relationship with Jesus that results in a desire to impact the world.  In an American culture where materialism and selfishness pervade our thinking, we strive to help youth learn the importance of living for Jesus by loving and serving others. And we don't just learn about it, we live it out through service opportunities and missions trips both in the Des Moines area and across the world.

Impact meets weekly during the school year on Wednesdays from 6:00 - 7:30 pm.  We meet at the church each week, except for the first Wednesday of the month, when we instead meet as small groups in 3 different homes.

On a typical night, we will spend the first half of the evening eating a meal and hanging out or playing a game and the second portion learning about how Jesus makes a difference in our lives.   Throughout the year, the youth of Impact get together for various activities like paint-balling, night games, and swimming. We also serve others throughout the year in various service projects.

So if you or your youth is looking for a place to connect with other teens, come check us out! If you would like more information, please contact our Team Pastor of Youth Ministry, Ryan Lenerz.
